LS1 conversion headers

Hey guys I'm doing an LS swap in my 63 two door and I'm looking for a good set of headers. Any recommendation? My main concern is obviously frame clearance.

Right now Holley owns the LS-x engine swap market offering turn key kits that have everything except a car body and a motor. A say right now because Holley went into bankruptcy and the Hooker header division was not bought up by the company that did buy Holley and Lunati to corner the carb and cam aftermarket. Hooker is currently sitting in storage in a ware house looking for a buyer to bankroll bringing them back into production. Which is to say all of the robots and the controlling computers that used to weld Hooker headers have been brought back from Mexico along with the more popular welding jigs and stored.

You could check into Dynatech, they make affordable, nice steel headers. (assuming you don't want to dish out for a set of stainless headers)
There are only a couple of LSx swap Impalas on this board that I'm aware of, and I think at least one of them used stock manifolds. You could go ask on Pro-touring.com.

I have a set of Dynatech coated headers on my LS swap Nova and I'm very pleased with them. Less than $500 too.
